No Pencils !!!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Hope you are all having a great weekend with this super weather !! It's been so hot we are just not used to it here !! Can't remember the last time I opened my window during the night ! Hope it lasts !
I have been crafting away !!

 I had the urge to use distress inks again I was so rusty, had a couple of practice shots first ! I really was inspired by some of my favorite blogs to get using them again !! I have chosen Magnolia Cuddly siblings and I wanted to have a go at painting a little scene ! So here goes lol

I really enjoyed painting the flowers and the grass !! I just used random dots for the flowers and light stokes for the grass. I also used a white gel pen for some highlights. 

I have used these stunning Kaisercraft Charlotte's Dreams papers and their Rose Ribbon so so pretty ! The frame I cut from the Cindy Loo Cartridge and then embossed with a cuttlebug folder. I stamped a papermania Wedding stamp with memento brown ink onto a piece from the paper pad and just added a few little Kiasercraft gems . I also used Magnolia Doohickey Dragonfly die and I thought I would do a top tip every post something I have discovered/learnt !

TOP TIP - If you use the Magnolia Doohickey Swirly tag die just cut it up you get the most beautiful corners by cutting at an angle ! I have added it in green to the top of the card just tucked behind the frame !! It looks so pretty ;0).

 Lastly there is a piece of Kaisercraft lace !

No recipe today as I have pretty much described it all lol ! 
I would like to enter my creation into the following super challenges !!

 - Week 12 Romantic & Chic - Tilda & Edwin Just the two of us sentiment & Chic roses !!
 - Week 21 Summer Lovin - Tilda & Edwin Just the two of us sentiment and painted summer scene
